  1. Cheers guys, it actually drove back home ok, apart from the arch constantly trying to eat the tyre, just crawled back home at 50mph on inside lane as i was scared tyre would blowout, will take it down to my local bodyshop for an assessment, will take a hanky with me just in case.
  2. A very bad day for me and the Zed at Aintree yesterday. Feeling gutted at the minute.
  3. Thats because you have an A and D in your name, very high risk as they also appear in the word “accident”
  4. Is there a universal list of what classes as a modification? I am guessing many cars on the road have non oem wheels but probably only a small percentage have actually declared them. Its seems daft that non standard wheels makes you potentially more of a risk but your allowed to put budget ditchfinder linglong tyres on no problem. likewise, the same with car stereos and the list goes on. Do stickers/graphics class as a mod and effect the premium? (God i hope not) Also why does my premium go up (with current insurer) with mods but they will only replace with oem parts, surely if someone is paying a premium they should expect to get the premium part replaced?
  5. Next Vid, no action just me ranting at the clutch and RAC

    Clutch help

    @Coz@TORQEN ordered the torqen csc earlier today as having more clutch problems, can you send out asap please as its a race against time to get car sorted for this weekend. many thanks
  7. Episode 3 brings us right upto present. This is last weekends events at Loton Park Hillclimb.
  8. Next Video I have put together in double quick time, yes I know when you watch it, there is no footage of me actually contact washing the car but it was done and a quick detailer used before final shots.
  9. First update 2022 … As i have just purchased a new PC and Go-pro I thought i would document my highs and lows throughout the season. I have decided to enter the connaught speed championship this year alongside the regular harewood championship. The connaught events are all over the country so will be a great experience for me and a steep learning curve. This first video gives a brief introduction to sprinting/hillclimbing with footage from the recent practice day at harewood. Now as i have a full time job, life and 2 kids to try and not kill daily, All the footage will be one take, no prep and minimum editing on the pc, mainly because i don’t know what i am doing anyhow. So with that in mind, i make no apologies for taking 30 minutes of your life you will never get back, but in the lottery odds chances that you don’t mind the content then give it a follow as there will be semi regular updates every couple of weeks (if the car and myself make it through in one piece)

    Clutch help

    Cheers, just ordered the wilwood master and some more rbf fluid from you. Will get that done and see how it goes.
  11. So today was practice day getting ready for sprint/hillclimb season. All was going well until i went to change down to second and it would not go into gear, lifted my left foot to try again and clutch was stuck to floor. My first thoughts were cooked fluid (again) but the fluid looks fine, last changed poss 18-24 months back but i do syphon out and replace the reservoir every couple of months. Only ever use motol RBF top spec stuff. after being towed to paddock and leaving car to cool down for 2 hours i could select gears when ignition was off and the clutch pedal had come back but i could not select any gear when i started the car. Left it another hour, same thing so stuck it in 1st with engine off, started car with clutch down and it bumped off, then i could select all gears again, drove it home fine. so i am trying to figure out the problem as i dont want it happening again, especially if im at an event miles away from home. i already have the uprated xtreme clutch and CSC kit, braided lines, and i have heat wrapped everything i can under the car as i have had this problem twice before, is it the master cylinder? as thats the only thing i havent replaced, or something else? The car was hot but it was only about 7 degrees external and i was only doing a second consecutive run which makes me think the fluid shouldn’t have been close to boiling. is there anything i can try before replacing parts or should i just get a master cylinder and new fluid and try that? final point, reservoir stayed at maximum, no fluid loss, if anything it was slightly higher than max after clutch went to floor (which may mean master is gone) or just normal expansion at temp.
  12. Bath time and track wheels and tyres on ready for season starting next week.
  13. Really like that colour/livery, seats look superb as well. Sure you will enjoy it, i bet you were torn between that and a nissan leaf though. Tough decisions in life.
  14. Main points are: every option is selectable/unselectable in the software so if you have just had the car mapped it will prob be the tuner has not selected it or deselected it by mistake. Second point is all the arc features only work when oil/engine is at a certain temperature to protect the car, so it wont work from cold or if too hot. If its worked before and your car is upto temp, not sure why it would just stop working, only thing i can think of is throttle position sensor might have gone faulty as you have to be at something like 95% throttle for it to work so if reading/voltage is slightly off that may be cause?
